The Same Stream Twice
at Play/Ground 2021
A short play about communication and miscommunication that reappropriates imagery from online theatre back into real-time and space.
The Same Stream Twice is a new performance that attempts to displace and reimagine the aesthetics, modality, and feelings of "zoom theater" into a lo-fi theatrical world. I wrote and directed this piece, and performed it with Evan Moritz, Ure Egbuho, and Michael Spears, with music by Evan Moritz.

Everything I've Ever Done for Money

This summer I presented a new work of comic opera, Triple Medusa, created and performed with Ino Aksentiev and Sarah Hughes, featuring costumes by Zac Brenner. We performed the piece in May at Joe Squared and in June at Floristee in Baltimore, MD.
Horse People in

Volume 8 includes 285 works from 48 countries performed during 2018, and is hailed by Robert Ashley as "a profoundly important publication"!
